Thanks for your prompt reply.

From the 9th til 11th, we stay in Paris only just to visit these top attraction venue like Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Orsay Museum, Pantheon, Notre Dame, Holy Chapel, Louvre Musseum and Palais Garnier Opera House.

On 11th day morning, we will be leaving Paris Gare de lyon station heading to Switzerland city of Basel via interlaken then heading up to Wengen for 2 nights.

On the 12th day heading up to visit Junfraujoch Region.

Coming down to Interlaken on 13th for a night then proceed to Milan on the 14th day.

Hope this info does help. Thanks again. Cheers!

Hello Mike,

Thanks for your reply.

You can purchase Paris Pass for your travel in Paris.

To purchase Paris Pass click "Here".

For your travel in Switzerland and Italy, you can purchase Eurail Italy-Switzerland Pass.

To purchase the Pass click "Here".

For your travel from Paris to Basel, you will need to purchase point to point ticket.

You can book and travel as follows:

- Paris to Basel - TGV Lyria train.

The route to Jungfraujoch is as follows:

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen – Jungfraujoch.

The Validity in your Pass depends on your Itinerary and on the days you wish to travel by train. A travel day is from 12:00 am to 23:59 pm during which you can take as many trips you wish.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass. With a Pass you can travel on regional/intercity trains within a country.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
